VIDEO: Pinehurst appears on Jeopardy!

Sure, it’s an easy answer…err, question, but still, pretty cool to see Pinehurst No. 2 mentioned as part of a Jeopardy clue again in a re-airing of the show’s Teachers Tournament on Tuesday night.

Not sure if Eduardo, who answered the clue correctly but didn’t win the episode, is a golfer. (Maybe somebody out there could help us reach him.) But if so, he’s free to head to No. 2’s first tee…on us. We’re hoping that might be a nice consolation prize.
